“It is believed that Nasteha may be in danger at this time,” police said in a statement. Amina Mohamed “suffers from bouts of paranoia,” the statement said.

Police also fear Amina Mohamed may be attempting to leave the state with her sister.

Police are asking the public to be on the lookout for the two, and that they may be traveling in a gold-colored 2013 Chevy Equinox SUV with Minnesota license plates ECG917.

Authorities are asking anyone who sees them or has information on the pair to call 911 immediately.
